Knitters just could not let this remark go unanswered. Many wrote in to set him straight. Some Ravelers even knitted Mo a gorgeous cabled sweater ...which was not at all itchy!
Happily, Mo realized that he needed to learn more about knits, knitters and knitting. He took knitting lessons (from a ten-year-old) and had a chat with author and knitter, Debbie Stoller of the Stitch and Bitch books. Thanks to Stoller, he realized that, "knitting is not quite as easy as people who've never knit like to think."
Let's hope he's gained a whole new respect for knitters.
Here's the link for the segment (I hope it's available for awhile):
